In fact, this was due to unescaping the '.  If I amend your Dutch entry

%A Johan \(cqt\~Hart
%D 2003
%T The Title
%Z Hart

and have in my document:

database t.ref
abbreviate A
reverse A
sort Z1A1

then everything works perfectly.  The entry appears in the references as:

't Hart, J., The Title etc.

and is alphabetized under 'Hart'.
